With the hustle and bustle of summer, there is no time to spare. In some cases that might include setting time aside in our day to tidy our work area. When it comes to our offices and desk spaces, there is much we can do in little time to prevent what otherwise might turn into a cluttered disaster zone and a dust collector. In this month’s blog, we share 5 tips for keeping your office clean this summer.
According to the National Association of Professional Organizations, studies show the average person wastes 4.3 hours per week searching for papers. It not only impacts employee efficiency and productivity, it can also have repercussions on your employee morale and potential clients. Clutter = stress. The importance of office cleanliness should not be underestimated. Follow these tips to keep your office organized and clean:
1. Go Green and Disinfect!
Green products can be used throughout the office to avoid harsh chemicals, which exacerbate seasonal allergies. It also helps to promote a more earth-friendly environment and disinfects your work space. According to a study recently done in 2016 by CBT Nuggets, the average keyboard is 20,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat. Keep a container of disinfecting wipes readily available for employees to use.
2. Keep Flooring Consistently Clean
At the very least, flooring should be cleaned daily or vacuumed. This is where New Hampshire Cleaning Services can assist you in keeping your floors cleaned consistently throughout the office. A deep cleaning every six months or each season is helpful, too! With high-traffic areas, over time, the excessive wear on flooring may result in the need for repairs or replacement.
3. Tidy up Your Desk Area
Keep only what you need at an arm’s length at your desk and use a filing system for everything else. Section out your office into zones to better help with organization and don’t forget to clean your catch-all drawer.
4. Help Pitch In
All too often employees fail to keep up with messes or forget to restock frequently used items such as utensils, printer paper, tissues, etc. Designating one person each day or week to clean any forgotten messes or restock regularly used materials will hold each person accountable and take less time to complete.
5. Dispose of Perishable Foods
With open windows and warmer temperatures, prevent food from spoiling by cleaning out your company refrigerator each week. Encourage employees to keep snacks in labeled, airtight containers.

Ahhh, springtime! The birds are chirping, the trees are budding, and the flowers are finally starting to bloom. Unfortunately, along with the many blessings of spring comes the curse of seasonal allergies. Before you run out and stock up on tissues, here are four ways your business can reduce seasonal allergies in the workplace.
If you’re a business owner, seasonal allergies are nothing to sneeze at. According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, approximately 50 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. The average worker with allergies misses about one hour per week over the course of a year and that sick time is concentrated during the peak allergy periods of spring, summer, and early fall. Seasonal allergies don’t just increase employee absenteeism; they also decrease employee productivity. A 2001 study found that when pollen counts spiked, productivity among workers with allergies decreased by as much as 10 percent!
Here are four things your business can do to reduce seasonal allergies in the workplace:
Seasonal allergies can have a significant impact on your bottom line. The professionals at NH Cleaning Services are here to help you keep your employees healthy and reduce the effects of seasonal allergies on your workplace.

New Hampshire winters can do a number on your business—especially your floors and carpeting. It’s time to get your commercial floors and carpeting cleaned and ready for spring!
The sand, salt, slush, and snow your customers and employees tracked in over the past several months can make your floors appear dull and worn. The professionals at NH Cleaning Services can help maintain and improve the appearance of your hardwood, ceramic, marble, or tile floors. After a deep cleaning, a commercial polishing will give your floors a clean, impressive shine. A commercial cleaning and polishing not only makes your business look great, but also extends the life of your floors.
Carpeting can really take a beating during the winter months. A professional carpet cleaning will help remove any ground in salt and sand and eliminate stains, odors, and bacteria. It also helps to fluff up carpet fibers, which can become matted down from winter foot traffic.
Keeping your commercial floors and carpeting clean and well-maintained is good for business. When your floors are clean, it suggests that you really care about your business, customers, and employees. It is also essential for protecting your investment. By having a commercial cleaning company provide ongoing cleaning and maintenance, you will extend the life of your floors and carpeting.
Keeping your home clean is important, but when it comes to your business, cleanliness can actually affect on your bottom line. But the time you and your employees spend taking out the trash and scrubbing your bathrooms takes your focus away from your business. By hiring a commercial cleaning company for your business you can spend more time focusing on your customers, not your toilets.
When it comes to running a business, first impressions count. And these impressions are formed the moment your clients and customers walk through your door—literally. But keeping your business space clean and inviting has many other benefits, including:
When you’re at work, you need to focus on your business, not your cleaning.

When it comes to running a business, first impressions count. And these impressions are formed the moment your clients and customers walk through your door—literally. A clean front entrance, crystal clear windows, and even a well-maintained welcome mat can draw people in and make them feel comfortable in your space. But the impressions don’t stop there. From the waiting room, to the bathroom, to the conference room—never underestimate the importance of cleanliness in business.
Your customers can tell how well your space is maintained almost immediately upon entering, and it affects their overall comfort level. Our senses are keen to certain details, whether consciously or subconsciously. Our eyes pick up on whether or not the carpet is clean and the shelves have been dusted. Our noses can detect how recently something has been vacuumed or if there’s been any deep cleaning in the restroom.
While employees might become accustomed to the way an office or building is maintained, a customer’s fresh set of senses hasn’t gotten used to your space. Ask yourself, If I were a new customer here, would I feel welcome and comfortable? What detail—good or bad—would you detect? Start there to determine whether your level of cleanliness is affecting your customers’ comfort.
Keeping your building clean isn’t just about making a good impression on customers; your employees need a clean working space to remain healthy. Sometimes the little things we so easily overlook cause the biggest issues. Consider the spaces that tend to be the most frequently used and contaminated:
A clean work environment helps employees be more productive by:
And happy, healthy employees will have a positive effect on customers.

Uggh. The restroom. No one wants to maintain it, but everyone–including your employees and customers–expects and deserves to use a clean one. A clean commercial restroom keeps everyone healthier—and it’s good for business.
Depending on its location, your restroom may be visited by hundreds or even thousands of people. Even if only a few dozen people use your restroom, it’s important to keep it clean from top to bottom. Why? Because image is everything!
How clean you keep your restroom says a lot about your business, including how you care for your customers. And according to a recent article from Chron.com, a clean bathroom can make or break a customer service experience if your company is in the hospitality or service industry.
This is especially true for restaurants. Naturally, most people equate the cleanliness of your restroom with the cleanliness of your kitchen. According a recent industry study, 75 percent of U.S. adults wouldn’t return to a restaurant with a dirty restroom. Thus, a clean restroom can lead to repeat business and higher earnings. Regardless of your industry, how clean you keep your restroom will directly impact your ability to attract and retain customers.
A clean restroom is also good for office morale and overall productivity. Employees spend almost half of their day at the workplace and shouldn’t be expected to use a dirty restroom or help maintain it. If not cleaned properly, a restroom can be a breeding ground for bacteria, and disease-causing molds and allergens. Unfortunately, once an employee is sick, disease quickly spreads, especially during the winter months. Hiring a commercial cleaning service will help reduce germs and bacteria, essential for a healthy workplace.
Most businesses don’t have the personnel, equipment, or expertise to properly manage this important, but often overlooked function. A professional commercial cleaning company can help keep your restroom clean from top to bottom, allowing you to take care of your customers.
To reduce bacteria and odor and keep a clean, functional appearance, commercial restrooms should be regularly maintained by:
Your customers may not notice when your restroom is clean, but they will surely notice when it’s not. The experts at NH Cleaning Services are here to help you clean and maintain your restrooms so you and your employees can focus on your business. Want to make your business shine? Contact us today.
The holiday season is synonymous with parties; it wouldn’t feel right without the chance to get together with co-workers and friends to celebrate another year gone by. Christmas parties are often looked forward to all year, at least by those who simply get to attend! There are a lot of details that go into the planning of our holiday celebrations which can be easy to overlook by party-goers, but the ones in charge of the behind-the-scenes have a lot to think about. You can’t be too careful when it comes to preparations for before and after the holiday celebrations!
Whenever you extend an invitation to a lot of people at once, at an office or a business for instance, there’s always a bit of a gamble as to how many people will show up. Significant others and family members may or may not be included in the invite, which could mean a lot more foot traffic than your location is used to.
Make sure to have your event space prepped and ready to go.
Think about the layout for the event: Where will people be entering? Where will they be spending most of their time? Consider where drinks and food will be served, and if there will be areas that need extra protection for foot traffic, sliding chairs, and other situations that may not be normal for your space. Having a professional on hand to help you prepare might be the best bet for making your party a huge success!
We’ve all seen the chaos that can remain after the party ends. It can be a little overwhelming to turn on all of the lights and see what’s left of the festivities! It takes a little extra effort to make sure that your office or venue is put back together and ready for normal business to resume. Taking the time to deep clean and prepare for the next few weeks of “business as usual” can help get your employees back into a work place mindset.
It’s never fun to be the one who has to clean up after the festivities. Getting an extra set of hands to help might be the best holiday gift you can give to your business. NH Cleaning Services offers a variety of services to help get your business back into pristine shape after your holiday celebrations. Contact us, and let us help your party be a huge success, before and after!
Ah, Winter… the season people either love or hate. With the cold, the snow, and everything that comes with it, it’s easy to understand why. It takes a little extra care when heading out the door, and a little more time to unwrap once you get inside. Because of the many people who will be coming through your doors with snow, sand, and salt clinging to their shoes, now is the perfect time to think about protecting your floors from the damage that winter can bring.
Once all of that fresh snow is shoveled out of the way, salt and sand are thrown down to keep roads and sidewalks safe. But these elements were never meant to be spread onto wooden floors, tiles, or carpets. Because your floors are quickly damaged by the coarseness of these elements, upkeep of their protective coating is essential.
Some damage is inevitable, especially if there are a lot of people coming through your doors.
Making sure you have the proper upkeep of the surface protectants will help you save money in the long run. Scheduling a professional buffing to take care of minor scratches and resealing or waxing your floors will keep your business looking beautiful.
Salt and sand accumulate quickly into carpets. The fibers of your carpet break down and become dull if elements are left in them for too long. Grains of sand and melted salt are quickly absorbed into carpets, and a simple vacuuming isn’t always good enough. Invest in a quality carpet cleaning. Hot water extraction can remove all of the elements that are below the surface, and keep your carpet looking new.
Keeping your floors clean also improves the air quality of your business, as leaving damp salt and sand in the fibers of carpeting can be the perfect place for bacteria and mold to grow on a microscopic level. Simple and consistent cleaning prevents the negative effects of winter on your carpet investment.
NH Clean is here to help keep your business floors clean, bright and professional. Taking care of your winter floor needs has never been easier. Contact our specialists to discuss what your winter needs might be, and find the help you need to keep your floors looking their best. Simple steps can save you money in the long run. Get the help and the service you need to keep your business in top shape this winter.

Over the last several years, the technology used in industrial cleaning has taken huge steps forward. Air quality and filtration has become a priority in the manufacturing of efficient vacuums.
The term HEPA gets tossed around in the cleaning industry, and it stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. But what does that mean for the customer? And why is that something you should look for in your cleaning services? Let’s clear the air a bit.
In HEPA filters, glass fibers separate the particles that pollute the air and make it healthier to breathe. Several processes help the filter trap nearly 99.9% of airborne particles that cause irritations and contamination; dust, pollen, mildew and other small objects that can cause harm are captured and removed from the air.
There are different types and variations of HEPA vacuums available, so it’s important to know the people you hire and the equipment that they use. Every space is different and not all spaces require the same intensity of cleaning, so it pays to know your facts, and to ask questions if you have any specific concerns!
Not all HEPA filters are created the same. True HEPA filters can collect and trap most contaminants that are at least 0.3 microns in diameter. That includes almost everything that would cause irritations in the air around you. But things like smells, odors and gases require a different kind of air purifier. Don’t let all of the details and acronyms scare you! Your cleaning professionals have the expertise to provide the cleaning that you need.
At NH Cleaning Solutions, we use the finest products that offer the most thorough cleaning. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about our services and what kind of cleaning you may require for your specific space. Our knowledgeable and professional staff is here to answer all of your questions and assist you in any way we can!
